My parents left me to fend for myself when I was fourteen.
I moved to Seattle to study at the University of Washington
I joined the rowing team and won the National Championship every year I was on the team. I was good, but very inconsistent.
California was our biggest rival, they were coached by Ky Ebright, and while I was on the freshman and junior varsity teams, his crew always won the varsity National championship.
Even though California won most of the important races, we won the varsity National Championship in 1936, and then won the Olympic trials to go to Berlin, and that's where I am now.
In Berlin, we won gold, by barely beating Britain and Germany, who were among the most refined crews in the world at the time.
